SopCast is P2P way of broadcasting video and audio contents over the internet. The main line of development revolves around the Windows platform, but there is a unix command-line alternative. Jason Scheunemann has developed a graphical frontend for Gnome known as sopcast-player, today at version 0.4.1. I wanted to add some useful features to this great application, so I started editing the version 0.3.3. The result has been released as a branch of the main program at launchpad, where you can find more details about the differences and the source as well.
